HONDA British Talent Cup hopefuls can start their planning for 2021 as chiefs have today released next year’s race dates.
The development series, which launched in 2018 as a Dorna initiative to root out new talent from the UK, will be back in action next season running across nine rounds with 18 races.
Following an early April test weekend at Snetterton, BTC action will kick off alongside the British Superbike Championship at its season opener at Oulton Park on May 1-3.
The two series will run together at all rounds except the second Oulton meeting, the Cadwell Park round and the Brands Hatch GP finale.
BTC riders will also line up at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone alongside the stars of MotoGP.
Chiefs say the calendar is provisional and subject to change in accordance with government directives and the latest updates regarding Covid-19.
